It's a great life if you can do it well. I sell high ticket stuff, so $1M+ deals happen and the $$ are great, but there is a lot of pressure when the sales are big. It's also a "what have you done for me this year" kind of business. Kind of like being an athlete. No resting on laurels.
The upside is I work from home, control my calendar for the most part, can work mobile if I want or need to (Pens games in Pittsburgh) and occassionaly enjoy my travel targets. I also have very little structured management. Pretty good gig right now. That can always change though.
